On the 11th hour of the 11th day of November, we will spend two minutes in silence to remember the fallen and honour our heroes.

The Penticton Museum Archives has put together some historic pictures to remember those brave soldiers in the trenches of the First World War and those Penticton men getting ready to go to war.

This photo gallery is a time to look at Penticton’s contribution.

The Penticton Museum and Archives also raised six banners across from the cenotaph in the 100 block of Main Street to honour six Penticton servicemen who gave their lives in war for our freedoms.
